Facilitate placing Italian Greyhounds in loving, responsible, forever homes. To provide continuing educational support to the Italian Greyhound family after placement to ensure a successful adoption.

Texas Italian Greyhound Rescue, otherwise known as T.I.G.R., has demonstrated to me, through the actions of everyone I've encountered in their vast network of volunteers, that the health, welfare, and psychological well being of every dog they rescue, whether Italian Greyhound or not, are their top priorities and their reason for being. They are tireless advocates who ALWAYS consider the dogs' needs over all else. The dogs they rescue are all lovingly fostered in their large network of family homes rather than placed in kennels, which greatly contributes to their overall well-being and temperament while waiting for permanent homes. T.I.G.R. has gained a strong, well deserved reputation across many states over the years, from Texas to Florida and to California, and I applaud and greatly admire them for what they do.

Texas Italian Greyhound Rescue- (TIGR)this non profit works tirelessly to rescue Italian Greyhounds and other greyhounds. They foster rescue dogs and are always placing them in loving homes. The dogs that are rescued require assistance that is very costly. Donations are always welcome and needed. We found our additional family member five years ago. Lucky ( pictured below) is such a good boy and was fortunate to be found by TIGR. Any assistance given to this non profit would be greatly appreciated.

I love this group for several reasons. They take in all sorts of sighthounds into this Italian Greyhound Rescue. Robin and her crew do everything possible to take care of hounds in need from all over the place.

We have adopted multiple furry babies from TIGR and have had great experiences with them. The foster families for these dogs are amazing people who let dogs into their hearts only to see them given over to new, forever homes. The group takes in sick and needy dogs and really works as a community to see that every dog gets the help it needs.
